2018 Sector 250 hard to start, won't idle but runs great

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have a Rural King version of the Hisun Sector 250 with about 75 miles and 15 hours on it.  It just started being difficult to start and idle.  But if I hold in on the gas a little it will start and run until I left off.  It also runs good and will run good until I stop then it idles for a few seconds then quits.  Its about 4 months out of warranty.  Battery voltage is fine before, during, and after starting.  Oil is clean and clear.  Gas is fresh.   I can hear the fuel pump spool up when I turn the key to actually start it, not when I turn it to the on position though like on most other UTV's I have owned.  Its really odd and has me perplexed.  The only other thing that I have noticed is that the engine temp indicator on the left side of the dash only indicates one bar regardless of how warm the engine is.  Other than that, it runs great.  Just hard to start and won't idle.  Any suggestions?  It has me  perplexed.

Thanks

 

Jason

Carbuereated or fuel injected?

Fuel injected.  I checked a few more things today.  After cranking it for about 7 seconds and not "starting it by pressing on the gas" I checked the spark plug and it was wet.  It was also a little black for a plug to have that few hours.  So its getting fuel, maybe too much but once I put it in gear and take off it runs like its normal.  Anything 500 rpms or higher than idle speed it runs great.  Could a slightly weak battery starve just enough voltage at startup to not make the plug fire good?  Then when the rpm's are up the stator takes over?  Just guessing.....

 

Thanks

Sounds like too much fuel to me. But spark is easily tested with a spark tester. There's some testers that are even adjustable to test how far the spark will jump.

The EFI computer sets the fuel mixture based on the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.  Since your spark plug indicates a rich mixture and your engine temp reads cold, the ECT may be bad. I have seen this happen on EFI cars.  I don't think the ECT is very expensive or hard to change. Might be worth a try.

I think that Dave's on the right track here.  I'd definitely test that particular sensor. And also verify the actual temperature. The thermostat is activated by heat. So if its working, the motor should be heating up.

Thanks for your replies guys.  I might have fixed it.  I changed the idle air control valve.  That seems to have fixed it although I have only gotten to test it briefly as the temp here is cold.  I had forgotten that these fuel injected ones have an idle air control valve.  The old one seemed to be stuck as to not feed any air while trying to start the engine.

 

Thanks again and will update thread if appears to not be fixed upon further testing.

      Hi guys. I'm new here. Just picked up a 2010 Hisun/Tomoto 800UTV yesterday. It's missing one of the body pieces just behind the driver side front tire. Does anyone have a wrecked or parts buggy they are selling parts. Or possibly know where I can find this piece? 

    • By justingrider
      Good morning everyone, appreciate any help on this.  I picked up a 2013 Hisun 800 for a project.  Previous owner had fried a lot of the electrical with a bunch of aftermarket audio equipment, so I have been replacing all of the wiring to give it a fresh start.  I'm 95% there with a couple of plugs I can't figure out where they need to be routed and the reason for me reaching out for help here.
      1.  A female 2-port white plug that comes off the end of the main harness, close to the side where the terminal hook ups tap into the battery.  It has a Blue/black-stripe wire and a White/blue-stripe wire. (Pictures: https://ibb.co/m9PRDqX and
      https://ibb.co/9pHZsFj). I'm assuming it is another single offset fuse or module like the other pieces around it but can't find anything on what it might be or that wire color combination in the manual/wiring diagrams...anyone know what this guy goes to?
      2.  On the crank position sensor (torque sensor), the wires that I have coming off of that are a green wire and blue/light-gray-stripe wire (https://ibb.co/FmJLJfs)...any idea on where this guy is suppose to plug in to?
      Again, thanks for any help you can provide!

      Just purchased a 2018 Hisun Sector 250. The gear shift is hard to engage. Tried depressing the brake pedal, no change. Tried with the engine running and turned off, no change. The gear shift cable, from the dash to the trans seems to be grinding. With my hand on the cable I can feel it grinding, vibrating, as the gear shift is moved up or down. Can this cable be removed and greased or does it just need to be replaced?

      I bought the sector hisun 550 for feeding deer, haven't had it a year yet and yesterday driving it I heard a bad noise. Took it back where I bought it and they said it sounds like the rear differential went out of it. Has anyone had any problem like this with there new hisun. I do have about 160 hours on it and 2600 miles. All easy driving miles.

      So i have a 2018 Hisun Sector 750 Crew and while driving the noise level is outrageous.  I want to find a way to decrease the decibel level, so does anyone have any ideas!!! i was thinking about installing foam on the roof enclosure and possibly putting something around the engine bay area.  I have not found any companies that makes a suppressor for the muffler...Any help would be appreciated.  thank you
